My name is Tracy Clemente and I live in Milpitas, California. That's just south of San Francisco. I was born and raised here in the Bay Area. I am a working mom with a 9 year old daughter, 2 step-children and 3 grandsons! I have been married to my husband for 10 years. We met on a blind date 15 years ago. Those do work. :) He and my daughter are the loves of my life. I also LOVE my 4 cats, Harley, Kitty Bones, Jinxy and Shadow.
I was introduced to the world of scrapbooking in 1999 and have been hooked since. I went to my first Stampin' Up! party in 2004 and said, NO WAY I can't do this stuff, at least not in my scrapbooks! I did make some cards here and there, but when my best friend (and my stamping & scrapping buddy) moved to Orange County the following year I lost interest in it. That is until......... January of 2007. I was surfing the web for something and I came across Prairie Paper and Ink, Amy Rysavy's blog and that was it, I was broke! ;-) Thanks Amy! I had found a WHOLE another world of stamping was out there... hello Splitcoast Stampers!
And much to my surprise I have a blog too! I didn't even know what that was until I got into this world of stamping.
My goal is to be able to create my own designs to post here. Okay, okay I want to BE Amy. (hee-hee) I love your work Amy!!!
My dream when I started all of this was to become part of a design team. I'm happy to say I am part of 3 now - All That Scraps, By LORi Designs and Taylored Expressions Sketch Crew. Now to take it a step further.... being published!
Lookout world here I come..........................
stamping, shopping and watching a good movie. oh yah, i love scrapbooking, gotta have my papercrafts magazine too!
